The Southern Costa Blanca is a true golfing haven with a host of fabulous courses on your doorstep.
The La Finca Golf & Spa Resort championship course is one of the most impressive designs in the area. Set in an idyllic location offering views across the Vega Baja and surrounding mountains, the course offers great variety with its olive-tree lined fairways, well placed water hazards and subtle elevation changes. The 5 star faciities at La Finca compliment this top-class golf course.
The nearby Las Colinas Golf and Country club course has been ranked in the Top 100 Golf Courses in Europe and plays host to Stage 2 of The European Tour Qualifying School. Featuring several short tricky par four holes, a delicate 120 yard par three and the par five 11th in excess of 600 yards it has something for everyone. The signature 18th hole with water running up the right to the green will test anyone with a good card coming in.
Other wonderful courses in the area include the classic Villamartin course that hosted the Mediterranean open. The notorious Las Ramblas with its tight fairways and treacherous layout is a mouth-watering prospect for those golfers that are a glutton for punishment! Aren't we all?
Other great courses include Lo Romero with greens as good as you will see anywhere on the continent, La Serena with its vast expanses of water hazards and nearby La Marquesa, home to the annual Miguel Angel Jimenez pro-am. Golfers are spoilt for choice on the Southern Costa Blanca. Memberships are available and green fees much more affordable than on the Costa Del Sol and Portugal. You would have to work hard to find a better region for the avid golfer.
Heading north towards Alicante we find the charming Font del Llop, a valley course with bags of potential moving forward. The vibrant city of Alicante is home to the fabulous Seve Ballesteros designed Alicante Golf Club. Just 5 minutes from the beach and the city centre, this is a fantastic venue for a golfing escape.
The excellent Villaitana resort on the Northern Costa Blanca offers stunning views across nearby Benidorm. Keen golfers should make this worthwhile trip and take the time to enjoy the famous Benidorm nightlife with the old and new towns offering options for all tastes.
